le blog

I've been in a bit of a blogging slump this year. Writing has always been my escape; my me time - not to mention this ol' blog being a way to keep our friends & family afar up to date on our happenings. I feel like I lost momentum towards the end of my pregnancy in this space however - I was so big, uncomfortable (and just plain miserable) that I could never seem to manage to sit down and finish a decent post. I just went through my draft folder recently and was surprised at just how many posts were started and never finished! Watching trashy TV on Netflix and eating ice cream while wondering if and when my cankles would disappear was about all I could manage during naptime for a while there.

And then of course, adding a new member to our family has been an adjustment and time spent at the computer nowadays is even more limited. From the moment Austin was placed in my arms, it felt like he had always been a part of our family - but, going from one to two has changed our world. Our routine was thrown upside down and we've had to figure out a new one. Three months in however, having two kids is feeling like the new normal. It feels like things have fallen into place and I'm keeping my head above water - most days, anyway.

In the past few weeks, I've been starting to miss the blogging world. Missing reading my favourite blogs. Missing writing. I want to feel inspired again. I've been feeling that tug to sit down, and spend some of that precious me time at the keyboard. Write about whatever, just because I enjoy it. It's a work in progress. The summer has already had a busy start with visitors and Mitch traveling for work, soon to be followed by our summer holiday in Southern California, two more rounds of Aussie visitors, Disneyland AND Oliver turning three. The summer is going to be over before we know it and I intend to make the most of the beautiful weather!

Long story short, I'm still here. My presence may be more sporadic nowadays, but after sticking with this blogging thing for 4.5 years now - la petite lulu is here to stay :-)

  1. I hear you! It's so hard to make the time, but this writing is such a nice escape. <3

  2. I found it pretty tough to get into a grove after having my second child. Actually, 8 months in and I'm STILL not on as much of a schedule as I would like. The balancing act is so much harder than it was with just one baby… or at least it is for me! Good luck, and I look forward to reading more from you:)

  3. You'll get there, my friend.

  4. I'm with you. Just do what feels right for you and your family. Glad to hear you all are doing well!

  5. Me time = sleep. Or Greys Anatomy on netflix ;)

  6. I didn't blog for months at the end of my pregnancy and now I am lucky if I get my son's weekly photo posted! Everyone understands and whenever you feel like writing (or can find the time) people will read. :-)


Thanks for reading, your comments make my day :-)
